What are/were your goals for this season? 

My goal this year was to run the Rock the Ridge 50 miler.  It was my first ultra, and not only did my husband support me in reaching this goal, but he ran it with me.  I'm not ready for the season to be over, so my goal is to run some faster, shorter distances for the remainder of the year.   

Long Term?  

Get quicker and eventually qualify for Boston.

Hill bounding!  

What brought you to running? 

I also ride horses competitively and began running to stay fit for riding.

December 2018

Why did you decide to train with The Run Formula? 

My husband started working with QT2, and I loved the training, structure, and feedback he was getting, so I decided to train with The Run Formula. I had one conversation with Courtney and knew she and The Run Formula were right for me.

There are so many things....  Her unwavering dedication to helping me become the best runner I can be.  She also balances giving me constructive feedback while also being my cheerleader perfectly.
